In what seems to be a ‘bolt out of the blue’, Freesat have issued a channel update which gives access to BBC iPlayer and ITV Player via channels 901 and 903 respectively.
ITV Player isn’t currently available, stating “Arriving soon in 2011”, but iPlayer is fully functional, as it is through the red button on the regular BBC channels.
This is a master stroke as far as we are concerned, as on-demand services are becoming more popular so in our opinion should have their own allocated channel position.
The update has also meant that the category ‘Interactive’ has now been renamed ‘On Demand’.Enjoyed this post? Help support the site by clicking the ad below:
